Certified Organic and Free Trade. Umoja coffee thrives to fruition in the Congolese forested highlands - elevation ranging from 1,480 - 2,000 meters. The cooperation consists of 11,600 members, mostly small farmers, men and women for whom coffee is a vital and even sole source of income and stability.
This fully-integrated coffee business, which consists of a women-only executive team, is enabling multiple stakeholders to help improve the living conditions of its members, providing schooling, housing, jobs, and reducing coffee smuggling on Lake Kivu, while promoting women's pygmy rights.
